Daily News Writer
If you keep yourself up to date on the daily happenings of the video game world, then this is the position for you. Daily news writers are expected to be handy with press releases and turning them into fun to read news posts while translating the PR silliness that overzealous marketers often tend to include. At least one post per day Mon-Fri is expected.
Part-time News Writer
This position perfectly suits people who have jobs/school obligations but still want to be a part of the Elite Gamer news team. So whether you have free-time during the week or on the weekends, part-time writers are expected to write at least two articles per week.
As an established gaming website, we get asked to review a LOT of games. Reviewing video games isn’t as easy as playing games all day and writing a few words. It takes time and conscious effort but is also very rewarding in turn. Accepted applicants will be required to write an honest review on the game they are given in a timely fashion. Many of these games will be from independent studios, however, reviewers who regularly submit their reviews on time and keep a high writing standard will be given AAA games when available.
Our community is what keeps the site alive, it’s why we do what we do. Community Managers manage our social groups and moderate comments on all our content. Keeping the community free from spam and hate-speech is an important job. It’s great for those who are used to managing different communities on their phones.
All positions are on a voluntary basis. However, dedicated individuals will start receiving review copies sooner rather than later, they will also be able to participate in putting together interviews, attend events with shiny press passes, and enjoy other such benefits.
